Golfer Harrington tells Woods to accept McIlroy is world’s best player
London: Ace golfer Tiger Woods should accept that world number one Rory McIlroy is out of reach, and is certainly the best player golf player, according to Padraig Harrington.
Woods still had trouble coming to terms with it on Monday, but anyone without the onerous mission of beating a team, including the record-breaker next month, had already accepted it unequivocally that McIlroy is the best golfer in the world.
Not so long ago Harrington was ridiculed when declaring that McIlroy had the chance to break Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 majors.
The naysayers are beginning to see the sense in his argument, and the Irishman believes its time Woods plays his best golf if he wants to beat McIlroy.
“If Tiger turned up with his A game, the rest of us struggled to compete,” The Telegraph quoted Harrington, as saying.
“Rory is now showing that, with his A game; everyone else is going to struggle to compete. Tiger needs his A game to come up against Rory. He’s just not going to beat him unless he has a big weekend,” he added.
Harrington was not just basing his opinion on golf but also from the view of a trained accountant.
It is a numbers game, as only three players since the war, Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Seve Ballesteros, had won two majors before their 25th birthday and two of them went to win more than any players before.
